European Commission, DG Regional and Urban Policy
2010 to 2013
Dr. Oliver Schwab
Expert Evaluation Network
The Expert Evaluation Network analysed the performance of ERDF in the 2007-2013 period on behalf of DG Regio. Main contractor were Applica (Beglium) and Ismeri (Italy). IfS was part of a network of experts from all EU member states. Each year a policy paper and a country report were prepared. The topics of the policy papers were:
- innovation policy (2010)
- renewable energy (2011)
- financial instruments (2012)
- job creation as an indicator in ERDF programmes (2013).
The country reports provided an overview on ERDF implementation in Germany. Based on the country reports the core team produced synthesis reports. Network meetings were held to discuss procedures and drafts.
More information, including links to download all reports, is available on the DG Regio website.
